Apple Muse and Almond Shortcake Biscuits

This is a twist on a very very very old (medieval type of old) favourite! Apple muse is a pottage, very common in medieval kitchens. Even though sweet this is a fairly healthy treat. The almond biscuits were my own addition to the pottage as I felt it would go better with something. So using the leftover almonds from the almond milk I made biscuits - it definitely pulled the dessert together.
